"I've never once thought of you as an ally. Not you. Not Kushida. Not Hirata. All people are nothing but tools. It doesn't matter how its done. It doesn't matter what needs to be sacrificed. In this world, winning is everything. As long as I win in the end...That's all that matters."
― Kiyotaka Ayanokouji (Classroom of the Elite)
"Shall I tell you something shocking? The god that you guys worshiped Ehit and the god the demons were worshipping is actually one and the same god. In other words, all of you have been the worshipping the same evil bastard who is telling you to fight and kill each other without ever realizing it!"
― Hajime Nagumo to Liliana S. B. Heiligh about Ehit (Arifureta Sekai Saikyou)
"What's the line? "Saving people, Hunting things...the Family business." Well, I think the people you save, they're how you justify your pathetic little lives. The alcoholism, the collateral damage, the pain you've caused! The one thing that allows you to sleep at night, the one thing is knowing that these folks are out there, still out there happy and healthy because of you...You great, big, bloody heroes."
― Crowley to Sam and Dean Winchester (Supernatural: S8E22 Clip Show)
"To the cowards quaking behind the police department's walls: You will not be spared. And to Batman: I have already won. Emptied your city with a vial of toxin and a few threatening words. That's how little the safety you provided was worth. And when the dawn comes...when Gotham lies in ruins and I turn my gaze to the world beyond...the legend of the Batman will be worth nothing at all.""
― Scarecrow (Arkham Knight)
